Next morning Saito was surprised after checking his stats he had gained 25 to his Fame, he did not really know what happened but he knew that's related to his interaction with Naruto.
Saito, Akira and Naruto passed their daily lives peacefully, Naruto reduced the rate of his pranking, to which the Hokage was thankful, after that day they kept meeting and Naruto finally managed to make more friends, although he improved in his Taijutsu, he was still ridiculously bad at the other subjects especially academics. He also seems to have developed a crush on a girl from his class named Sakura Haruno, Saito and Akira could only shake their heads after watching his interactions with here.
Saito could only sight at how head strong Naruto can be because no matter how she shot down his advances he kept standing up. At first he wanted to give him some advices but remembering his last life he was no Casanova and he had to thank his lucky star for meeting his wife.
Akira's advancement became more and more physically oriented, while he started to lag on his other trainings, as for Saito himself his training did pay off making his physique and chakra stronger but his biggest harvest was in chakra control as he had already reached a Normal Genin's level. He found out that he was more of an all-rounder guy. His abilities where on par with his peers but he still fell short compared to some students like Sasuke Uchiha who has excellent Taijutsu, Ninjutsu and Control. He had the pleasure of meeting him one day when he was with Naruto, his first impression of him was a haughty kid who thinks nothing of the people around him.
Unbeknown to Saito the Anbu finally finished investigating him. His records where clean and after further inspection he was deemed innocent. The Hokage was finally relieved to learn that Naruto finally started making friends.
2 years passed by rapidly, they were close to the date of their graduation exams. Naruto was still struggling with the clone jutsu he even managed to create a Transformation Jutsu, no matter how much Saito tried to help him he always ends up with a weird looking clone. Saito was sure of his graduation, his only concern was Naruto.
During these two years the amount of R. Points stopped going up after a certain time. According to his understanding this was caused by fate stabilizing. Making his interference with Naruto weak. He tried other methods by interacting with other characters but it seems like influencing fate is harder than it seems.

After finishing his preparations for tomorrow's finals he went to bed.
Next day everybody was on edge while the test seemed simple it represents the result of their own hard work and also determines their future.
The written exams where mostly about memorization. After that comes the practical exam.
Two teachers entered the examination room one of them is a guy with a ponytail and a big scare on his nose. His name is Iruka Umino a man of average height and build. He has brown hair that he keeps in a ponytail, dark eyes and a scar that runs across the bridge of his nose, He is the Head instructor of the academy and he is also one of the rare adults who treat Naruto kindly, and another teacher named Mizuki he has white shoulder-length hair with a slight hint of blue to it and green eyes.
Iruka and Mizuki both sat behind a big desk and took a list of names. Soon they started calling the students names one by one and asking them to perform the clone jutsu. One by one the students executed it and passed. Akira also got good results, soon it was Saito's turn, and he executed the jutsu without problems. While he and Akira passed the exam he was still worried about Naruto as they knew how bad his clone jutsu was.
After I while Naruto came out with a face filled with sadness. Saito sighted, Akira already went ahead to tell his parents the good news. So he went to Naruto while trying to think of a way console him, he could only invite him to have some ramen and tell him that he can still try again next year.
He knew that it's possible that this will make Naruto angry with him but he could not stop himself. But as he was about to call for Naruto. Naruto run out of the academy. He could only give up for now as Naruto needed some time to calm down. He then headed for his home.
